Swing bridge repairs

Work continues (right) on the opening mechanism of the swing bridge leading into Trinn Mills and Bathurst Parade. Pedestrians can use the bridge but it cannot be opened to allow tall marine traffic through. The bridge has been repaired before but the mechanism continued to break down.

FOBB campaign against Marchioness jetty

A second planning application has been lodged by Dr and Mrs Hugh Pratt for the ‘reinstatement of an historic landing stage for use associated with Marchioness site’. The Friends of Bathurst Basin are strongly opposed to the scheme and it forms the latest of their three campaigns.

FOBB campaign

Friends of Bathurst Basin (FOBB) are very concerned about proposals to build a block of flats in the railway cutting alongside Guinea Street (picture on the right). It will destroy the view of an historical feature – the railway tunnel opening that linked Temple Meads station with Bristol harbourside. And the current proposal is simply too dominant. Barossa Place, Jubilee Place and parts of the General will be seriously affected.
